Today’s world is facing huge challenges and deep transformations: global warming, shifts in global powers, resources and biodiversity depletion, rising inequalities, digital and technological disruptions and weakening social pacts. Such a context calls for radical changes to build more inclusive and sustainable business models. It is up to us not to miss these challenges and to make organizations more creative: We now have the opportunity to invent new lifestyles to reshape our cities, our working environments and our managerial approaches, and to develop new paths for our economies.

Participants coming into the Sustainability and Social Innovation program should expect to join an innovative education ecosystem that will empower them as changemakers: the program will provide them with the necessary critical thinking, hard skills and leadership skills to rethink, innovate, and shape tomorrow’s sustainable businesses and inclusive economies.

With a broad multidisciplinary approach to understand the complex challenges and forces that are shaping the global business environment, and a unique combination of theory and practice, this very intensive program enables participants to customize their curriculum and to hone their leadership skills.
